The United Benefice Great Gidding with Little Gidding and Steeple Gidding is part of the North Leightonstone Benefice within the Ely Diocese, the parish lying in the north west corner of the Huntingdon Deanery. The living of the Benefice is currently suspended.
Of the three churches in the Benefice, St Andrew’s Church, Steeple Gidding was declared redundant and closed in the early seventies. However the church remains consecrated, and is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
St John’s Church, Little Gidding is designated a Chapel of Ease, and continues to be used for occasional services (see below). For details of the story of this historic church, visit the website at www.littlegiddingchurch.org.uk
The Church of St Michael, Great Gidding consists of a nave, chancel, north and south aisles, west tower and spire with a south facing porch. A church has stood on this site for some eight hundred years.
Parish Mission Statement: To show and nurture the love of God by caring for those within our community and worldwide.
